The Nintendo GameCube and Wii both offered up lots of fun and classic video games. But neither console was particularly portable, so the only way you could play those games on the go would be via software emulation.
The dot-matrix printer may seem like a relic from the past, but just about every TV set, mobile device or laser printer still relies on creating images from a matrix of dots. They’re just smaller, and perhaps more colorful than the old Okidata Microline 320 from your youth.
Love the look of neon lighting, but don’t want to deal with the fragility of glass and high voltage transformers? This tubular, flexible lighting can be bent into any shape you want without risk of damage, and a lights up in any color too.
I’m always amazed when I see people playing bagpipes. That weird sack with pipes sticking out of it looks so complicated that I can’t believe anyone could master it. I’m just not musically gifted I guess.
LEGO makes a huge number of really cool kits. But if you want to make your LEGO constructions just that much more awesome, check out these lighting kits from Vonado. The New York-based company custom designs lighting sets for off-the-shelf LEGO kits, giving models an even more finished, dynamic, and engaging look.
If you want to make a cake that looks like a motherboard, you may have struggled in the past. Maybe it came out looking more like a motherboard after a fire. Well, Los Angeles baker and author Rosanna Pansino of Nerdy Nummies is here to help.
Despite its primitive looks, MineCraft is an immensely capable game-building tool. Over the years, I’ve seen some insanely creative and complicated levels built using the game’s blocky elements. Recently, one enterprising MineCraft fan created a really amazing thing – it’s a playable version of the game that lives inside of a chest inside of the game.
Chinese tech company DJI is best known for its excellent photography drones. Now they’ve taken their expertise in remote-controlled vehicle design, and applied it to an earth-bound vehicle, dubbed the RoboMaster S1.
This $499 robot isn’t just for play though, it’s designed to teach kids (and kids at heart) about robotics.
Yep, you’ve heard the Super Mario Bros. theme a million times. Now make it a million and ONE with this rendition performed by a couple of credit card terminals by the Device Orchestra.
It’s pretty cool and sounds authentic.
Video game systems and computers from the 1980s had a bad habit of coming in light-colored plastics which all aged quite horribly. Even just sitting out turned many of them yellow, and usage just made it worse.
YouTube channel AcademeG found a cheap Bentley Continental GT (are they ever actually cheap?) and created this monster off-road version. In this case it probably was cheap since it had so many problems with the engine.
YouTuber Michael Reeves thinks that Roombas are far too calm and collected when they bump into objects. They really should be more upset. I mean it hurts when I walk into walls. Not that that happens very often.
This week marks the 30th anniversary of the Game Boy’s release in Japan. The old portable brings back memories for many of us, even if we’ve come a long way since then. In fact, these days we can even create our own Game Boy games.
